Jenny Craig Weight Loss – Post Pregnancy Diet
Having a baby can change the way you look at the world. Nurturing children starts even before they are born, and parents want to provide the best for their kids. Priorities change, new responsibilities arise, and new mums get the opportunity to bond with their child. There’s a lot going on, but it can also be the right time to commence a Jenny Craig weight loss post-pregnancy diet.

What is the best diet for post-pregnancy weight-loss?
Diets aren’t all created equal, and although most will help you lose weight, very few diets will keep the weight off in the long run. The majority of people diet spontaneously, often as a knee-jerk response to emotional negativity, without putting any real plan in place. New mums who have been carrying and caring for their baby for many months deserve weight-loss support that only the experts can provide. Jenny Craig post-pregnancy weight loss plans work because they give you an entire team of experts to work with who guide and encourage you every step of the way.
Our post-pregnancy weight loss diets focus on physical health, with emotional wellbeing an automatic benefit. It’s no secret that overweight and obese women and men are more inclined to suffer serious diseases and ailments, but everyone wants healthy parenthood, so losing weight and getting in shape is in everyone’s best interests. Your Jenny Craig diet is easy to commence and follow, with success only a few steps away.
Step one: Have a chat with a Jenny Craig Consultant over the phone or at your local Centre. With more than 104 Jenny Craig Centres around Australia and New Zealand, there’s bound to be one near you. You then get to create your personalised weight loss strategy and design your own menu plan in consultation with our experts. Your Consultant will also introduce you to exercises and lifestyle improvements that transform fat into toned muscle.
Step two: Jenny Craig makes the hardest part easy. You get to eat 4 perfectly portioned and calorie-controlled meals per day from local and international cuisines. New meals are continually added to the range, and although your taste buds will be satisfied, we also make allowance for you visit your favourite restaurant occasionally or celebrate special events with family and friends.

Is it healthy to go on a diet post-pregnancy?
Nutritionally enriched meals are the secret to good health, whatever your stage of life. If you are still breastfeeding, the healthy meals you enjoy will transform into mothers’ milk that sustains and nourishes your baby. It’s important to diet under the guidance of expert nutritionists and dietitians to ensure your child is getting everything required for a healthy body and mind. Your Jenny Craig post-pregnancy diet is tailored specifically for your requirements, allowing you to lose weight and tone your body without sacrificing the health of you or your family.

When should you start dieting after your pregnancy?
It’s important to give your body time to rest and recover after giving birth. Jenny Craig recommends you wait until your six-week postpartum check-up before commencing a diet. Starting a diet too soon can delay your recovery and cause you to become lethargic and tired. It takes a lot of energy and resources to care for a newborn child, and breastfeeding mums need to ensure their baby is getting the right amount of nutrition.
You should keep your goals realistic and understand that you may not return to your exact pre-pregnancy shape no matter how much you diet and exercise. Pregnancy can cause permanent changes such as wider hips, a softer belly and larger waistline.
What foods should you eat on a post-pregnancy diet?
Nutritionists agree that consuming fresh fruit, vegetables, reduced fat dairy products, wholegrains, lean meats and healthy fats all contribute to a successful post-pregnancy diet plan. When you diet with Jenny Craig assistance, we balance the food groups, provide healthy alternatives, count the calories and create portion-controlled meals designed specifically for you. In other words, with the experts on your side, you can focus on your baby and your family while we take care of the dieting details.
Every food and menu choice you make on a Jenny Craig weight loss post-pregnancy program is yours. The duration of the program is also yours to choose, along with exercises for toning and sculpting your body. We aren’t here to tell you what to do. We are here to enliven and enlighten you, so you can become empowered and inspired to consistently lose weight without losing motivation. At Jenny Craig, we are all about teamwork and strength in numbers, meaning our entire team is on your side during the weight loss journey so you will have the strength to reach target weight and transform your life for the better.
